Hardwell and Maddix are no strangers to collaboration, from the now certified classic 'Bella Ciao' over to the rip-roaring ‘Take Me Away Again’ and the high-octane ‘Revolution’, the Dutch connection runs deep and shines strong from the two producers and no more so than when they showcase the power of unity through creativity.
Those in the know will be no stranger to Luciana, a name that automatically lights up releases with her Midas Touch, from the #2 UK charting “Yeah Yeah” alongside Bodyrox, an iconic anthem in its own right, over to working with the likes of Taio Cruz. Now, debuting on Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings and adding her club heritage stamp onto ‘ACID’, the trifecta together are ready to take over…
Taking Luciana’s uniquely recognisable vocal to propel the main body of the track, harder-leaning big-room is then overtaken to have the listener ride the wave of unflinchingly bold and fast techno. Laden with a nod to the classic acid sound that squelches and adds tweaks of dynamic melody and fluctuations of synth speed, to really get the party going, it’s an amalgamation of classic production techniques revamped for a modern audience, weaving through the ages with a booming stance. As Luciana’s vocal chants dominate to list off the spelling of ‘ACID’ - take “I, as in I don’t care!” as a standout declaration – Hardwell & Maddix’s grandiose and white-knuckle ride across the production takes us to all-new heights, showcasing that they can push things into the unknown whilst still remaining as at the top of their game as ever.
Worthy of dancefloor domination when it is released this May, make sure you get your hands on Hardwell & Maddix feat. Luciana’s ‘ACID’ only via Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings!
